100 F
114 heat index
only 45% humidity, I'm surprised.
Typical Kansas summer, reminds me of: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1990-07-04.sbd.miller.tetzeli.fix-26351.81523.sbeok.flac16
100 F that day too, Cold Rain & Snow opener.
Record high for this date, 107 F 1974.
Nice tune Arb.

Come to Northern England if you like. Our summer vanished a few weeks ago. Chilly, and buckets of rain. Down South (i.e. London) most of the first day of a promising England v India Test series was rained out (cricket).

8 PM in Va Beach and it's 92 with a Heat Index of 108. Tomorrow's forecast is 94 with a heat index of 115.

I picked stewed tomatoes tonight when I got home.

97 in Floyd right now. Forecast is calling for highs of 84, lows near 65 overnight during the festival next week.

Y'all come to Seattle. We're in the mid 60s! This is the coldest summer of my life. I guess we have here a mirror effect or something.

Here near Frostbite Falls, we are getting a one day 'reprieve' today. Temps only 88, but dew point finally dropped out of the upper 70's and low to mid 80's where it's been since Sunday. Add to that nearly 8 inches of torrential rainfall since last Thursday - the rain was actually quite warm as it fell - only to amply feed the atmosphere, allowing our dew points to break all local records! A couple of days at 81 and Tuesday we hit a dew point of 84 with a heat index of 119!!! We have been in the upper 90's for a week, so even one day in the upper 80's with a dew point in the 60's is relatively pleasant by contrast. We return to 90's with heat indexes over 100 starting tomorrow.

I'm sorry to say to folks east of the Mississippi, brace yourself for a torrid, yet tropical week's worth of these kinds of days.

'The Big Sleep', 'Rear Window' and 'After The Rains' have been good distractions ( 'Nanook of the North' is still ready if needed). For tunes, we've been listening to Orchestra Baobab's 'Pirate's Choice', Harold Budd's 'Luxa', Tuu, Burnt Sugar's 'Night In Tunisia, Sort Of', Sam Cooke's 'Porgy and Bess' and Michael Hurley's 'Ancestral Swamp' - and of course, Martin Denny and Yma Sumac . . . as was once sung "don't fight it, you've got to feel it ... feel it". And from the Dead, the Dark Star > Spanish Jam > U.S. Blues from Miami 6-23-74, and several selections from the summer of '76 with those slow, languid versions that seem well paced to fit current energy levels. Those slow, early blues tunes from '66 and '67 also work well.

After all, six months from now - it is our fate - we'll be looking at a few feet of snow and temps well below zero - without any wind chill, therefore I keep telling myself 'be here now' . . . and be cool, fellow forumites - this, too, shall pass.

Ring, I meant that I'm trying to appreciate, in the moment, this historic tropical and oppressive heat and humidity. Because - as hard as it is to fathom these days - in three or four months, those numbing winter winds will be returning. Heck, only two and a half months ago - on May Day - we had cold winds and snow blowing across our still very frozen brown and white - tundra like - landscape.

Though I'll admit, it is difficult to function in this 24/7 sweat lodge / sauna - like atmosphere. Truly, lazy days of summer. Good luck with helping your mom cope.

If you don't mind a bunch of transient, ignorant, pretentious, uber rich people and no seasonal concept of time or holiday cheer, it's a blast. I'm eyeballing vermont but I have to wait for sanders to die because I couldnt live in a state with an avowed socialist representing it in congress. That just creeps me out. I heard there are pedophiles there too, which makes no sense because of the gun laws, you'd think they would all be dead by now.

Dragged the second AC out of the attic today and plugged it in the living room - I held out on AC till last Tuesday when I put the first in the bedroom. Small apt. two AC's = 68 degrees all around.

Huh? SDH and I are just barely getting out of our long pants and long sleeve shirts...I might even have to switch from thick leather shoes to flip flops if we get close to 120F. Not likely, as it's already on the downhill slope hereabouts; will be busting out the thermal underwear for the August chills to come. Low temps are predicted to nudge under 90F then.

Thus supporting the old adage, "it ain't the heat, it's the humidity that bothers most folks".

Impressive 'wall of dust' the other day. As for visibility, I guess it must be like a quick, dry and dirty equivalent of a blizzard - intense, impressive, short-lived, and a major hassle.

I deliver in a vehicle with no a/c. We hit our record high of 103 in the Washington, DC area. It was about 120 in the truck.

Tomorrow, I'm going to put a 16oz bottle of water in the freezer until it's frozen solid. Then, right before I'm going on the road, I'm going to shove it right up my ass.

Come on down to San Antonio, I do that everyday. The only difference is I go in style (1967 VW Type 1). On the flipside, when it hits 50 degrees we bundle up like were in the tundra.

*ammendment* Not refering to the bottle.

We've got 96, feels like 107. Tomorrow they're saying 100. It's really demoralizing. My elderly mother is a prisoner in her apartment. I just bring in food and tell her not to go outside because she could basically die. (Well, I don't say it quite like that, but that's the gist.)

What an incredibly sad a view of our country we will leave to our children. Your k. is far from alone. It seems a bit more powerful a sentiment then usual teenage angst. The young and old are the canaries in the coalmine. Civilization is to be treasured. It's is eggshell thin.
